Chris Hemsworth compares text messages to drugs


The ruggedly handsome Aussie star, Chris Hemsworth is back to what he does best: being the kickass Avenger Thor, in the much awaited Thor: Ragnarok. The actor revealed his aversion to text messages during the promotions of the film!

During an interview with a popular men’s magazine the muscular actor spoke at length about how technology is affecting relationships and that his phone gives him anxiety!

Chris reveals,

“I prefer the efficiency of phone calls. With texts, the back and forth pulls me away from the kids and what I’m doing. Not to say I don’t do it. But as a society, we’re close to not communicating verbally anymore. I don’t know about others, but I find my phone gives me a fair bit of anxiety. When you get a text, the dopamine released in your brain is like a drug. It’s the same reaction that you might have to cocaine or alcohol or whatever – when you see it, it releases something. Don’t have your phone next to your bed for starters. Don’t take it to dinner, because you’re not giving anyone your attention anymore.”

We couldn’t agree more Chris!

Thor: Ragnarok releases on 3rd November 2017
